School Milk Scheme

From February 2015, in conjunction with the Department of Education’s new School Food Plan our school will be providing a milk scheme which will be available to all of our pupils. The scheme will be run by “Cool Milk” and we would like to invite you to register your child. The cost of school milk is subsidised for pupils aged five or older at a cost of 22p per day.

Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, which is delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. Find out what the top ten reasons are for drinking school milk at www.coolmilk.com/whyschoolmilk

How to register;

  • Simply register at www.coolmilk.com or complete the registration form and post directly to FREEPOST COOL MILK.
  • When registering on line you are then able to make an immediate payment for your child. Alternatively, you will receive a payment request within 48 hours after registering.
  • You can pay Cool Milk either online, over the phone, at a local PayPoint or by cheque in half-termly, termly or annual instalments.
  • Please pay by Tuesday 5pm for your child’s milk to start the following week.

If you have any questions regarding school milk please visit www.coolmilk.com  or contact Cool Milk directly on 0844 854 2913. More information on the scheme  is also available from the school office

Arts Week – Chinese New Year

During the week commencing 2nd February the children will be working with Wendy Reeves – a local artist – undertaking art projects linked to Chinese New Year.  A list of the activities is outlined below.  If you, or another family member, would like to work alongside your child for some of the activity you are invited to do so for an hour on their allotted day from 9:30am – 10:30am.  Please could you ensure that all children have an old top / shirt with them for the activities, as some of the materials used have the potential to damage clothing.  Please do not bring siblings / younger children, as space will be at a premium.
